The term "March Madness", quite literally, refers to the fact that seemingly anything can happen within the NCAA Tournament.
There are always titans, i.e. Kentucky, Duke, Wisconsin and others this season, that sit on the top seed lines, and these squads often appear unbeatable before the tournament opens.
In opposition, there are double-digit seeds that enter the bracket with little to nothing in the way of expectations. However, one or more of these teams always make a run to the tournament's second weekend, and the 2014 was no exception, with three double-digit seeds (Tennessee, Dayton, Stanford) advancing to the Sweet 16.
This year's field is no different, as there are several clubs that possess the combination of talent and veteran know-how needed to upend the biggest names in the sport. The players may not be widely recognized, the coaches may fly under the radar and the programs may not come with instant credibility on a national stage, but none of that matters when the ball is tossed in the air to begin a 40-minute contest for the right to advance.
Today, we will break down five collegiate teams that have a fantastic opportunity to make a run to the Sweet 16, and when the dust settles, we will see who is able to make the cut over the four-day extravaganza to come.
